Most finance directors in large companies are dissatisfied with budgets; they often believe too much time and resources are spent on this activity. Some even believe budgets may even be harmful to the organisation, as managers engage more in game playing rather than maximising shareholder returns. Many believe budgets don't deliver all that they should, and suspect there must be a better way. These thoughts and ideas have led to the development of new tools and techniques, some quite radical, even proposing the complete abandonment conventional budgets.

Why you should Attend?
Beyond Budgeting is about changing the way budgeting, planning and forecasting is used in modern organisations. It is also about releasing people from the burdens of bureaucracy and control systems, trusting them with information and giving them time to think, reflect, share, learn and improve.
This programme introduces some of these ideas but also develops them so that delegates can identify some practical new approaches, which they can realistically take back into their own businesses. It covers approaches to help organisations go beyond budgeting and develop and implement the latest ideas in financial management and control.
